It’s the friggin’ Catalina Wine Mixer! Back in 2010 David Garofalo began the journey of The Cigar Authority and today it is the most listened to cigar podcast in the world. We look back at the journey as we welcome the Vice President of Aganorsa Leaf Terence Reilly to the show.

In the first hour we will light up the 2018 Cigar of the Year that was voted on by listeners of the show, customers and employees of 2GuysCigars.com and the hosts that make up our 2 hour show. It’s the Aganorsa Leaf Connecticut and we share with our thoughts on what makes this cigar so special.

In the second hour of the show we will fire up gifts from a listener and we will let you know who that was on the show. Dave & Barry will fire up an Atabey while Mr. Jonathan & Ed will light up a Byron. We will let you know why the listener chose these cigars as we look back at the glorious history of The Cigar Authority as well as peeking into the future.

Join us on The Cigar Authority, the most listened to cigar podcast in the world. We will have all the usual suspects including Versus, Offer of the Day, Cigar News and a peek into the Asylum.

What is TAA? If you ask around only your hardcore cigar geeks know what TAA is and even then they only know because of one of the most popular yearly limited editions in the cigar industrys; Tatuaje TAA.

However the Tobacconist Association of America is so much more than that. Our own David Garofalo just returned from their yearly meeting and convention in La Romano, Dominican Republic. Tune in and we will tell you what went on, what rumors were overheard and what can be expected in terms of Limited Edition TAA releases in 2019.

In the first hour we will light up a cigar from the March Care Package, the 2012 Connecticut by Oscar and in the second hour we will fire up a cigar that Dave has chosen to keep secret. What is it? Will the boys be able to guess? Or will they fail?

Skip Martin and Mike Rosales from RoMa Craft Tobac join the hosts of The Cigar Authority to continue the discussion. Skip and Mike talk about a variety of topics that we did not get to during the regular show. This is the first one of many and was done on a whim so its raw and unedited. You can expect a more produced product in the future.

They have some of the most vocal fans on social media, but does RoMa Craft Tobac make Nicaragua’s Best Cigars? We will sit down with Mike Rosales (Ro) and Skip Martin (Ma) and explore the company that makes Cromagnon, Aquitaine and Neanderthal.

The boys will offer their cigar review on the Intemperance Avarice and we will see how well Skip and Mike know each other after 10 years of making cigars together. We’ve all made fun of Barry’s spelling errors, and Skip has decided to challenge Barry to a cigar spelling bee.

In the second hour we reach deep into the cigar vault as we fire up a 2016 Cromagnon Firecracker and offer a cigar review on how it is smoking 3 years later. Dave has a way for you to get a couple of these, but you need to tune into the show to find out how.

It's the moment Mr. Jonathan has been waiting for. This week he gets in David's pants although I am not sure it turned out how he expected. Dave and Ed Sullivan are away so Mr. J plays the role of Dave and Barry the role of Ed.

In the first hour they will fire up the Dos Hombres Candela as St. Patrick's Day is a week away. Due to popular demand we will revisit the GHOST method of fixing a lighter and look at some of the misconceptions about cigar smoking.

In the second hour we will fire up a limited edition size of the Plasencia Alma Fuerte called Robustus 1. We well welcome back to the show Sammy B as we discuss building a smoking room in your house.

It's a party as we are joined by the Head of Consumer Marketing for Altadis USA, Brad Winstead as we fire up a cigar from the March Care Package. We will discuss and smoke the Montecristo Nicaragua Series. We will look at the footprint of Altadis and discuss the cigars within their portfolio and perhaps get a sneak peek at what is coming this year.

In the second hour the celebration continues as Barry turns 50. We will fire up the first cigar he ever gave a 100 rating to back on June 11, 2008. We will share our thoughts on the WinsteadNatural and ask, "Why does Barry rate cigars so high? And why does it bother people so much?"

Rumor has it that there might be a bottle of Flor de Cana rum present. It's a rumor Barry started because it's true. The boys are drinking again so this one might fly off the rails.

Hop on board the crazy train known as The Cigar Authority, the most listened to cigar podcast in the world. We will have all the usually suspects including Versus, Offer of the Day, Cigar News and a peek into the Asylum.
